This was a record-breaking year for the Muskegon Area Promise with 84% of students returning to Baker College of Muskegon or Muskegon Community College this fall. The two-year, countywide scholarship also attracted 241 new high school graduates. They joined the 174 returning students to bring the total number of Promise Scholars to 415. Officials say families will save over one million dollars this year alone.
